Some people questioned whether the always-listening smart speaker was actually going to be useful. As it keeps learning new tricks, like ordering pizza and grabbing you an Uber, the totally tubular device is quickly growing its fan base. It’s rare to find the Amazon Echo on sale, so if you’re itching to grab one, now is the time to do it.

As a quick refresher, the Amazon Echo is a Bluetooth speaker that’s also connected to the Internet and is always listening for your commands. Through the Alexa voice assistant, you can tap into your WeMo smart home ecosystem, adjust your Philips Hue lighting, switch to your favorite TuneIn Internet radio station, or yes, even order an Uber for your night on the town.

This is the first time this year that Amazon has decided to discount the Echo and it might not go on sale again until Black Friday. You can find the Amazon Echo on sale for $153.71, which is $26.28 off the regular price of $179.99. You still get free shipping, but it looks like you’ll have to wait until next week before Amazon has the smart speaker back in stock again. The Alexa-enabled Amazon Tap is also on sale with an equivalent 15% markdown, bringing the regular list price of $129.99 down to $111.01.
